  • Title: Alfa Romeo 4C Concept
    Descriptive info: Steering a path between design, innovation and technology.. ALFA AND ADVERTISING.. DISTINGUISHING ELEMENTS.. THE CONCEPT.. IMAGINATION AND INVENTION.. It all starts from the first pencil sketches.. These display all the emphasis, the enthusiasm of someone who tries to imagine something new when faced with a blank piece of paper.. In this situation, you put down on paper all your feelings, your convictions and, why not, even a touch of subversion.. IDEAS BORN FROM DREAMS.. The shapes come to life according to various sketches and drafts.. The result is therefore the soul of a model, the essence of the 4C Concept.. Shapes and silhouettes then follow, but only two or three drawings out of all the various proposals will be chosen to become models.. THE MODEL.. THE DESIGN TAKES SHAPE.. From paper drawings paper to a clay version, the 4C Concept shapes are plied, resized and fine-tuned.. The 3/8 scale model reveals a compact car with curvy and uncluttered lines.. ACTUAL SIZE.. TRANSLATION OF EMOTION.. The model is now actual size.. Approximately 4 m in length and a wheelbase of some 2.. 4 m.. In its shape, the 4C Concept is revealed in all its compactness and agility, in a final model very similar to the original design.. CARBON.. STYLISH AND LIGHT.. Carbon fibre is the key element around which all of the 4C Concept's performance characteristics have been built.. The chassis includes a tray made out of carbon in which a space has been formed for  ...   The suspension layouts are extremely sophisticated to ensure optimum agility and road-holding: high double-wishbone at the front, a McPherson layout at the rear.. PEAK PERFORMANCE.. The powerful rear mid-positioned 1750 four-cylinder Turbo Petrol power unit developing more than 200 HP guarantees optimum performance and acceleration from 0 to 100 km in under the threshold of 5 seconds.. APPEAL, ENGINEERING AND POWER.. On this supercar, technology derived from the 8C integrates and interacts with technology from Alfa Romeo's 'everyday' models.. The car is equipped with a new Alfa TCT gearbox and Alfa D.. selector.. PROCESSING.. TEAMWORK.. A concept becomes reality.. The 4C Concept is assembled: the load bearing structure is ready to be clad, the body and all components to be put together.. A wide and varied working team has been called in to achieve a single aim: to turn a prototype into a supercar.. Before it is put on show, the 4C Concept will have to be assembled, painted and inspected.. THE MAKE.. RESEARCH AND EVOLUTION.. All that is missing on the 4C Concept now is the name: the Alfa Romeo badge is placed on the car.. The new concept car has arrived: curvy features, distinctive traits and all the character of a true Alfa.. COLOURS.. LAVA RED AND FLUID METAL.. Two colours flow dynamically on the vehicle body.. A fiery red with dark hues, Lava Red soft touch finish and the new Fluid Metal, which creates a silvery reflective effect, like a sheet of metal..

  • Title: Distinguishing elements - Alfa Romeo
    Descriptive info: DISTINGUISHING FEATURES.. the Visconti snake, the colours of Milan and the sporting accolades: a history of a make that has always been true to itself.. The creation of the Alfa Romeo badge dates back to 1910 when Alfa was founded in Milan.. The two well-known symbols that it includes, the Red Cross of the municipal banner and the Visconti serpent became the emblems of the Lombard car manufacturer.. Since the early years of the 20th Century, the badge has always remained true to itself and undergone very few changes.. DISTINGUISHING FEATURES.. The first badge dates back to a period from 1910 to 1915.. The name A.. L.. F.. , which stood for Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili, appeared from the very beginning, flanked by heraldic symbols of the Visconti household, within a circular shape.. The circle divided into two parts contains a red cross on a white background in the left side while the right side contains the serpent-dragon of the Visconti family devouring an enemy.. The words Alfa and Milano were separated by two Savoy knots that the badge incorporated until the fall of the monarchy in Italy.. MODIFICATIONS.. The original Alfa Romeo badge underwent its first change in 1915, when the engineer Nicola Romeo took over the company and his surname was added to the badge: hence the new name "Alfa Romeo".. In the meantime, the P2's victory in the first world title added a new element to the badge: a laurel crown in silver metal running around the entire circumference.. The austerity of the immediate post-war period, together with the destruction of the original mould following the bombings, led to a simplified, single-coloured badge.. With the proclamation of the Italian Republic, the two Savoy knots disappeared from the circular shield, replaced by wavy lines.. In the 1950s, the badge was restored to its previous colourful glory, while in 1972 a decision was made to remove the word Milano from the badge following the opening of the Alfa Sud plant near Naples.. LATEST RESTYLING.. The last restyling dates back to the 1980s, when the badge increased in diameter and the laurel crown disappeared.. For Alfa aficionados throughout the world, the Alfa Romeo badge has always been a marriage of passion and sportiness; a symbol of true and genuine values, a never-ending love affair.. FRONT END.. Distinguishing feature of a motor vehicle, the front-end makes the car and model recognisable at first glance.. This is true of Alfa Romeo, a traditionally sporting brand where the front-end looks both attractive and aggressive, conveying the quality and sophistication of engineering excellence.. ORIGINS.. On the 24 HP of 1910, the big upright brass radiator was flanked by two side gas-fired lanterns.. Twenty years later, the position of the front end was already more raked, with a protective grille in front.. With the advent of new machining processes, the shapes became smoother and more dynamic: now it was possible to discern - firstly, in the 8C 2900 B Lungo and later in the Villa d'Este - the shape of the badge with additional slots.. "TRILOBO".. It was not until the Giulietta, however, that we saw the advent of the celebrated three-part 'trilobo' motif with a central shield and iconic side whiskers, accompanied by round headlights.. During the modern or 'rational' era, the entire width of the front-end was taken up by an air intake incorporating the shield and headlights.. These were the features that varied most: the headlights were round on the GTA, rectangular on the Alfasud and trapezoid on the Alfa 75.. On the 164 and the GTV/Spider, the badge returned to its position resting on the bonnet, with the 156, it again acquired a dominant role on the front end, moving the car number plate to one side.. In recent years, Alfa Romeo cars have gone back to the iconic 'trilobo' motif again and again – for example the 147 or the 8C Competizione – and marking a new kind of family relationship with the Brera.. MODERNITY.. The front end is still a distinguishing element, even on the most recent additions to the Alfa stable.. In particular, the front-end of the Alfa Mito features generous air intakes required to allow the exuberant power unit to breathe, a stylised version of the classic grille and a badge on the bonnet.. The front end of the new Giulietta, on the other hand, develops around the classic badge, an essential element which is suspended in a new position between the air intakes.. WEEL RIMS..  ...   handles reappear even in the most recent models: elegant concealed rear handles were designed for the new Giulietta.. MATERIALS.. Material use mirrors the development of automotive engineering.. The quest for strength, lightness and performance in the history of Alfa Romeo has ensured that each component has been developed and designed using the most disparate materials.. METALS.. One essential feature of the first car dating from 1910 was metal, used not only as a covering but also used for the structure of the car itself.. Another material used to a greater or lesser extent throughout all historical periods was steel: one good example was the abundant use of steel on the AR51, known also as “Matta”.. Titanium, on the other hand, was used in structural features of the racing car chassis and also on the suspension systems of the F1 179 F dating from 1982.. As time went by, aluminium and its alloys were used more and more for both mechanical components, structural components and also in the body.. This is illustrated by the GTA dating from 1965.. The most recent addition to the Alfa Romeo range uses aluminium, high-strength steels and magnesium, reducing the weight of the resulting components by 35%.. COMPOSITES.. Yet it was probably not until the 'composite' materials - used first for coachwork and then for entire bodyshells of racing cars that truly incredible results started to become apparent.. This was the case for the 33 SC 12 (1977), which used fibreglass or the Gruppo C (1986), a prototype made predominantly of Kevlar.. It was taken to extremes in the 8C Competizione, where carbon elements make the car simply unique and the Alfa MiTo with its aluminium and carbon fibre inserts.. PLASTICS.. Once upon a time, plastics were a cheap alternative to more noble materials such as metal, wood and leather.. Nowadays plastics are an instrument of design; technology has made it possible to obtain materials that are pleasant on the eye and to touch: plastics that are matt and soft.. Their design, processing and finishes make it possible to combine them with other materials easily and use them for interior furnishings even on top level cars.. Nowadays exterior plastics are painted and difficult to distinguish from metal parts, while also allowing a saving in terms of weight and cost.. DASHBOARDS.. DASHBOARD.. As on any car, but perhaps even more so on an Alfa Romeo, the dashboard is undoubtedly one of the elements that really rings the changes.. The dashboard mirrors the development of the car, evolving with it over the course of the years.. DEVELOPMENTS.. In 1910 it was sufficient to have a few instruments screwed onto a simple plank of wood to create a "dashboard".. As models came and went, however, the dashboard became more complicated.. The number of instruments grew and the wood was replaced by a panel, first flat and then with a more moulded shape.. After World War II, it became typical to use synthetic materials such as Bakelite and Perspex for the knobs and panels: this is noticeable, for example in the Villa d’Este and in the Giulia T.. I.. In this way, we gradually came to see the classic round instrument layout that is still typical of all dashboards on Alfa Romeo cars, with the rev counter and speedometer in front of the driver.. In the case of racing cars or out-and-out sports cars - such as the TZ2 and the 33 Stradale - the speedometer was moved to one side, in front of the passenger.. These main instruments are joined by secondary instruments (fuel, oil and water) of lesser diameter and located in the centre of the dashboard: examples can be seen on the Duetto of 1966, the Alfa 156 and also the 8C Competizione.. CONTEMPORARY.. Recent developments led to the advent of a dashboard that is more driver-oriented.. The sensation for the driver is that of being in perfect control of the vehicle, of a safe, wrap-around passenger compartment with everything within easy reach.. The sensation of control by the driver is backed by that of safety and comfort for passengers.. Developments present on the dashboards of the most recent additions to the Alfa range: a forceful dashboard with an intuitive control panel and graphics developed specially for the driver of the Alfa Romeo Mito; a horizontal dashboard for the new Alfa Romeo Giulietta harking back to the taut and light lines of the historical Giulietta in the 1950s and the addition of rocker controls in the centre..

  • Title: Alfa Romeo in the world of advertising
    Descriptive info: from the first posters to the latest advertisements: the development of an Alfa Romeo language in the world of advertising.. 1910.. THE FIRST POSTER.. The cars have been backed by posters from the outset.. The new industrial product was immediately featured on many magazine covers including Tribuna Illustrata, Auto Italiana and Domenica del Corriere.. The first A.. advertising poster is shown here.. 1919.. ALFA ROMEO MOTOR CARS.. The first Alfa Romeo poster after the end of World Wall I displays the slogan: “Automobili Alfa Romeo, le migliori per città e turismo” [Alfa Romeo motor cars, best around town and for touring].. Designed by an artist named Elio, the print shows a winged Mercury, symbol of science and progress, lifting a car.. 1924.. Renè Magritte.. Clearly influenced by Cubist art, the poster created in 1924 by René Magritte, depicts the car in a surreal urban context.. Two elegantly-clad female figures are shown to emphasise the class of the motor car.. 1924-1925.. La voiture italienne de grand luxe.. LA VOITURE ITALIENNE DE GRAND LUXE.. During the 1920s, references to motor sport are very apparent in all but a few specific posters.. The object of desire was extolled only by confirming its technical virtues.. 1925-1930.. TOP-CLASS IMAGE.. From the 1920s, information began to give way to communication.. The advertising attempted to evoke situations and settings typical of the jet set.. It created an exclusive, high-class image designed to appeal to customers.. 1930's.. A CAR OF CLASSIC PERFECTION.. This style also persisted into the 1930s and during World War II but a different language began to make itself felt with the advent of fascism.. The rhetoric of the empire, the dictatorship and the homeland radically influenced the advertising posters.. Despite a much more imposing and propagandistic style, cleverly imbued with a futurist ethos, a pronounced sense of aesthetic and artistic value is also present.. 1928-1932.. ALFA ROMEO GEM.. Class, elegance and technical perfection: a gem in other words.. This is how Alfa Romeo was defined in the 1930s.. 1938.. THE "MILLE MIGLIA" THUNDERBOLT.. Alfa Romeo became “the vehicle of dictatorship”, “the most famous sports car in the world”, “the Mille Miglia thunderbolt”.. Engineering: a gem in other words.. BLEND OF PERFECTION AND ARISTOCRACY.. The 4-seater Alfa Romeo 6 c 2300 Mille Miglia combined speed and fast touring with a “blend of perfection and aristocracy”.. 1939.. A NEW WORLD RECORD FOR ALFA ROMEO.. A new language began to become established with the arrival of fascism.. The advertising conveys the product's added value not so much to the customer as to a citizen of the empire.. 1940'S.. LATINE PEOPLES.. In an atmosphere of pomp and propaganda, Alfa Romeo emerges as an industry of excellence.. Its products are symbols of homeland power but also of its breeding, its good looks and its industry.. 1942.. AERONAUTICAL ENDEAVOURS.. The symbols and values of the empire are represented in fascist period posters: fasces lictoriae, the power of industry, soldiers at the front in North African landscapes, aeronautical feats and naval endeavour.. MARINE ENGINES.. Just as in the aeronautical field, excellent motor boats were also powered by Alfa Romeo engines.. 800 A BUS.. The Alfa  ...   Alfa Romeo Mille.. The Alfa Romeo truck chronology strikingly reveals that, after Fiat, Alfa was the most long-lived Italian manufacturer of industrial vehicles.. GIULIA DESIGNED BY THE WIND.. The topic of safety – active and passive – has been a concern from the early 1960s It is present in the poster for the Giulia, the car “designed by the wind”.. 1966-1979.. ALFA 6 CYLINDERS.. A poster designed to amaze, to amuse, to arouse curiosity, not from a purely design viewpoint but rather from the viewpoint of content.. Slogans that are witty and sometimes ironic, witticisms and sometimes even stories, played out in episodes over a series of posters.. These range from subtle humour to more evident comic appeal.. VOCTORY IN IT'S GRASP.. The adverts no longer followed a single aesthetic style.. Instead each advert or series of posters pursued its own path and appealed to a different audience.. Somewhat conventional images were associated with various degrees of humour with a descriptive text.. 1967.. MONTREAL INTERNATION UNIVERSAL EXHIBITION.. In 1967, the magnificent Alfa Romeo Coupè Montrèal was presented in the Italian pavilion at the universal exhibition in Montreal.. The theme of the pavilion: "Human conquests".. The final version was then presented at the 1970 Geneva motor show.. 1970.. ALFA VIRUS.. This was the time of a very fine set of posters for the French market on the "Alfa Virus”, describing all stages of the 'disease' that strikes down Alfa enthusiasts.. ALFA VIRUS FRANCE.. The “Alfa Virus”: embodying what it meant to be an Alfista.. A disease that strikes at the heart and has no mercy.. The poster was the hymn of Alfisti throughout the world.. Maybe some did not realise its symbolic value but in the end does it really matter?.. 1971-1972.. SPIDER IS ALFA ROMEO.. “The Spider is Alfa Romeo.. The Spider is moving through nature” or “Giulietta.. It turns dads into heroes”: this was the fresh and light-hearted style of posters during the late 1970s.. 1973.. Alfasud.. A set of adverts was also published for the newly-created Alfasud, with comic-book graphics and language: “Alfasud, it's all yours Aunt Giulia”, “Before you fall in love, find out about her family”, reveal a carefree and naive approach.. 1975.. QINNING ALFA.. The 33TT12 victory announcement in 1975 went beyond celebrating a brand that excels on the track.. Instead it simply reflects a way of being: winning.. 1979.. Alfa 6.. The Alfa 6, a saloon car produced by Alfa Romeo at the Arese plant went on sale with the difficult task of competing with the great German BMW and Mercedes-Benz saloons.. “Alfa 6 the Italian alternative” was the claim.. 1981.. Les chevaux de feu.. An Alfa Romeo that takes on a more sporty image that is at the same time more seductive and sensual.. The Alfa perfectly illustrates the idea of the “chevaux de feu”, the excellent advertising slogan taken from a Russian film produced in 1962 by the Armenian film director Serge Paradjanov.. 1986.. ALFA ROMEO SPIDER SPAIN.. In the 1980s, we find advertising posters that enhance the car's shapes and models, giving rise to advertising with a double meaning: an Alfa Romeo Spider seduces and conquers..
